SCS February Fan Club

I wanted to make a card for the February Fan Club on Splitcoaststampers. The theme is Best Buds-Friends and Flowers.  You should make a card or project with floral themes or themes of sweet friendships. I also used the sketch shown below by Teresa Kline.
I have to confess that this stamp is called Apple Blossom. I don't know if I mentioned it but the local scrapbook store I visit has started carrying LaBlanche Stamps. How happy that makes me!!! I purchased this one over the weekend and  there was no name on the package. I have just now gone on an online search to find out the name of it. I probably wouldn't have used  this color theme had I known what it was before I colored but I like it just the same and will just consider it some wild flower.

Scrappy Frogs Blog Challenge is wanting to see die cuts in their  challenge. I have plenty of those (listed in my recipe below-under accessories).
Cooking It Up With Katie wants to see three favorite things-butterflies, flowers, die cuts

Stamps: LaBlanche Apple Blossoms, Flourishes Friendly Reminders (sentiment)
Paper: PTI white cardstock, American Crafts-The color of Memories
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Copics, white pearls, PoppyStamps Ivy Tendrils, Die Cheery Lynn Designs exotic butterflies/small die, Spellbinders Shapeabilities Pendants Contemporary Hearts Die

That's it for now. Be back tomorrow with my CCEE Stampers card.

Looks like I am the first one here this morning. Seeing how I am a DG I needed to come to your blog and comment on this wonderful card. Those flowers are beautiful and I love your little touches with the flourish. Gorgeous from one corner to the next. Love it. Have a wonderful day.
Bear Hugs,

The stamp may say apple blossoms but I think it looks like a clump of Forget-me-nots. Some of my favorite flowers. I love that butterfly too. He's so lacy and elegant.

WOW is this just fabulously gorgeous Brenda!! I love the colors, flowers and dainty flourishes!!

Carla S. said...

This is gorgeous, Brenda! I love the blue and all the diecuts! I wouldn't have thought apple blossoms and I think your coloring is beautiful!

Marisa said...

Lovely blossoms and the flourishes around the edges are a great touch!

Makes me feel like spring is just peeking around the corner, Benzi. Gorgeous!

Benzi, you're lucky that your craft store is selling La Blanche! I just bought three online, and they're smaller than I pictured, but oh so lovely anyway.

This apple blossom looks good in blue. Maybe we can pretend it's the cool morning light hitting a white apple blossom tree, casting a blue shadow.

This is just gorgeous in those shades of blue! Regardless of the blooms, they look fabulous colored like this! Beautiful card!

Bonnie says they look like forget-me-nots, I thought strawberries. What ever they are I love them in blue. Beautifully colored as always. Love all the die cuts as well.
